Banishing the Baby Belly: Week 6

I'm happy to report that I finally seem to be making some progress. I'm down two pounds this week. A legitimate two pounds. Hurray for me!

Now there's only...23 pounds left? Until, that is, I reach my pre-baby weight? Then we're looking at at least another ten? Oh, brother. That doesn't sound so good.

Okay, let's not look at the big picture. I think I'll just go back to thinking about those two wonderful lost pounds.

And, I didn't even work out. That whole bending-down-to-plug-in-the-vacuum back injury had me down and out most of the week. It's finally starting to feel better, though, so I'm hoping to get to the gym tomorrow.

So we'll make this week's challenge the same as last week's. That is, to make it to the gym at least three times. I might have to put off weights for a little bit though. Who knew back pain could be so persistent?

That's me. How did you guys do?


  1. Lost a pound! And, I am hopeful this stomach bug I seem to have caught will take me down another 2 at least.

    The upside to being ill I guess.

  2. Oh those stomach bugs. They are good for weight loss, aren't they? Hope it passes soon!

  3. I had the stomach-bug-2-pound-weight-loss last week. Then those damn two pounds came back. Then I got rid of them again. For real this time! So I'm holding steady at -25.

  4. Two pounds in a week is really impressive. Good for you! The amount of weight you want to lose might seem big, but you can most definitely do it. And I wish I could join in the fun but I actually don't own a scale. But I didn't exercise this past week really at all, so I'm going to make it a point to exercise at least 4-5 days this coming week. I'll report back on how I do with that...
